Sh!t Happens

That just shows we're all human (part omission). Realizing this, when I'm working, I make it a point to tell my buddies that my ADD doesn't permit them to be present when I really need to focus. Next, I gather everything for each section and when possible review the manual, dry running the process. Lastly, after each sub-assembly project, I stop and clean-up my work area, regrouping and looking for left overs. Even with all of this, I still end up with mystery pieces. I've got boxes of them.

Here's mine. I planned to replace the clutch discs and cable this morning. Box has been sitting here unopened since Wednesday. When I opened it I had a new cable and ONE disc!!! I guess I didn't update the quantity when I ordered and it never occurred to me when I checked out that the price was really good. DAMN!!!! By the way Ron Ayers had the best price on these. 12.72 compared to 14.18 at CCP. Shipping was less at CCP but total was $10 less at RA. Pays to check around.

Like the black frame, maybe now is a good time to strengthen the frame??

Pandora's Box

I'll post some pics and explanation when I'm done, but it is amazing how much has to be done to make an airbox functional after being modified for a pod filter and relocate electronics back to OEM....

way back when when I signed up with advrider I had a 08 brand new KLR which I sold to fund my 88 xr600 resto...

I feel that changing a name is a bit complicated at this point or not?




I'm a little slow. I figured you were an American expatriate living in EL Salvador. Your English is excellent. I'm just give you crap about your name. I'm just happy you're on an L now
yeah my name is not appropriate! jajaja

my father was american and I have dual citizenship...I was born in spain however....been some places too, hahahaha

cheers bud
